Yes you're right, that statement doesn't seem to be correct.

As per your recommendation, I think mentioning utf-8 string as the serialization type would be fine (though not sure if that is the right thing with the C++ client library), but it would be better to use/recommend the str type for Python2 since there is no automatic decoding into a unicode string for Python 2. So it would just be type str for both Python 2 and 3.
